Since a double cardan or CV driveshaft cancels out the angles on that end, you need to set it up so the non-CV end operates at 0 degrees. It's as simple as setting it up so the pinion is in line with the driveshaft. In reality, we've found that on leaf-sprung vehicles, it's best to set the pinion 1-3 degrees lower because the pinion will climb under load. Vehicles with link-type suspensions can set the pinion to 0 degrees.
